Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. I hope everyone is staying safe during this unprecedented times. Once in a while we need to take our mind off of what is happening in the world and find a positive outlet. My outlet is card making. I put the music on and start to create. Today’s card is inspired with the last happy time I had just before we were on lockdown. The ocean. Below you will find the steps to create your own Oceans of Joy Frame Card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, score at 4 1/4” and fold in half for a vertical side fold (A2).
Step 2 – Diecut Adventure Edeges (clouds die) using scrap Cardstock to use as a stencil. Place on top of White Soft Finish Cardstock trimmed to 5 1/2” x 4 1/4” and apply ink to the edges to create clouds. Repeat this step several times filling the Cardstock until half way. Adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
Step 3 – Diecut Diving Accessories (fish) in Green Cardstock and Blue Cardstock. Optional use an Alcohol Marker to create some shading.
Step 4 – Diecut Ocean Edges in various Blue Cardstock. Adhere each layer and fish using Kids Choice Glue.
Step 5 – If you have the Garden Notes Frame It Stitched Ovals die then diecut it using White Soft Finish Cardstock trimmed to 5 1/2” x 4 1/4”. If you don’t have it placed Fitted Ovals using White Soft Finish Cardstock trimmed to 5 1/2” x 4 1/4”. This will create a frame. Adhere to card using Foam Tape.
Step 6 – Stamp Splish Splash Sentiment on the last wave from the bottom using Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
Step 7 – For added interest and sparkle adhere some Clear Jewels to create bubbles.
This card can used be used many occasions by changing the sentiments and/or colours. It can definitely be used for front liners during this crisis. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
